Key takeaways here – This is a hip hinge movement which means the hips/backside should move behind the midline of the body. There should be only a little bend at the knee. When the KB drops between your legs, keep your head and chest up and thrust your hips forward hard to generate the power to drive the KB up at least parallel to the floor. There should be very little to zero use of your arms to generate the power required. You must also keep your core nice and tight throughout to ensure your back remains straight. You should not feel this exercise in your lower back. Most gym users struggling with using their glutes effectively so chances are you need to do some glute isolation work if you struggle with this. Your back is not to be messed with so instead of getting it wrong and risking injury why not speak to a coach to help you move more effectively? #kettlebell #kettlebellswing #glutes #coach #back #exercise #puregym #preston #workouttips #thursday #workout #tips #hips #itsallinthehips A post shared by DaleWallace.PT (@dalewallace.pt) on Feb 21, 2019 at 9:24am PST Tags Exercise, kettlebell, kettlebell exercise, kettlebell swing, training, workout ← Assisted Pull Ups → Press Up Grip Variation Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
